-existing conditions. ironically, the health care reform law mitt romney signed as governor and remains in effect today in massachusetts does mandate coverage for anyone with pre-existing conditions, whether they already have health insurance or not. a bit later in the program, we will talk about one of the few moments that mr. romney failed to strike a tone of moderation. it concerns a great big yellow bird. that makes it on our "ridiculist" tonight. a good friend of his, oscar the grouch, i can tell you it's really got my attention. first, ari fleischer with the serious stuff. he serves as part-time unpaid communications consultant to the romney campaign and political analyst, roland martin. ari, what do you make -- do you say that mitt romney is seeming to be striking some more centrist positions, or at least sounding more centrist? >> well, let me try to peel this onion one slice at a time. the 47% comment really breaks down to two. one is that the pejorative way he spoke about the 47%, which as i, you didn't show my clip, when you asked me about that the day afterwards, i said it was wrong, they'r

was in the hospital and he got in touch with me, he said, you have a law degree, right? i said, yes, i do. he said, i'd like to write my will. so i went over to his hospital room and he proceeded to describe where he wanted his fishing rod to go and where he wanted his skateboard to go. and he wanted to give his rifle to his brother. throughout all of this, david had courage and strength of character. i'm reminded of that slogan, clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose. david didn't make it. but he did not lose. david is one of my heroes, one of the confidence builders that i have in america's future. i had the chance at the republican convention in tampa just a few weeks ago to meet a wonderful person, jane horton. jane's the wife of a shorpshootshorpshoot -- sharpshooter who went to afghanistan. there was a knock on her door telling her he'd been killed in afghanistan. this was at a time when misguided people are going to the funerals of our service members and protesting. she was asked what he thought about that as they were protesting her husband's funeral. and she said this, chris died so people lik
